Journey to Certification

Read our Impact Report

The B Corp certification process is particularly robust.

HewardMills’ services and our business, were assessed across five key impact areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. The minimum score required was 80, HewardMills surpassed this with an overall score of 104.5, which is considered a high score.

During the certification process, B Lab UK commended us for our unique blend of advisory and education work in the field of Data Protection and Privacy, and the way in which we harness the diversity of our team to raise the bar on data protection for underserved communities worldwide.

HewardMills achieving the B Corp certification is especially significant given that only 24% of B Corps in the UK are owned by women and only 8% are led by people of colour.
